    Just wondering what your thoughts are on these two newer auction bantam hens of mine... not sure what breed or breeds they are.

    #1: Bantam hen, soft feathering, 3 toes, non feathered legs/feet, mohawk look on top of head, very quiet.

    I would say so, looks just like the Silkie xs I've seen.... though it could be part any crested variety...Polish etc.

    I have the exact chicken as No. 1. I've been trying to find out what it is.
